Truth about Youth is the Co-operative Foundation’s project in the South West, run over five years in partnership with The Prince's Trust.
The project aims to challenge and change the widespread negative perceptions of young people, using media and the creative arts.
Plymouth – Britain’s Ocean City? project is one of the latest Truth About Youth courses to be delivered in the South West. Working with Amanda Poulding of Energetic Films, 12 young film makers worked collaboratively to explore Plymouth’s rebranding as Britain's Ocean City. Over the three week course the film makers produced this main collaborative documentary film and a series of individual short free-style pieces as part of the project.
